Before you can pin to that board, you need to be invited to do so. The best way to do this is to first follow the Knits for Fashion Dolls board, then contact me either through the group or on the contact page and send me your Pinterest ID/email address and I'll add you to the board!

The groups' main focus is on fashion dolls (Barbie, Sindy, Tyler Wentworth, Gene etc) and BJDs of any size. Although patterns for other dolls (i.e. baby dolls) may be shared with members of the group, they will NOT be put into the Knits for Fashion Dolls Pattern Archive.

Nope, crochet patterns are shared too!

All members are sent an email outlining what they can and can't share with the group. Full details can be viewed in the Knits for Fashion Dolls Files section on the Y! Group page.
